Rekorderlig vs Aldi’s alska strawberry and lime cider

Mr Bargain likes Rekorderlig strawberry and lime cider and as of today he also likes The Swedish Cider company’s alska strawberry and lime cider, which is available at Aldi.

Today I spotted Aldi’s offer in the fruit flavoured cider market, so its alternative to Rekorderlig and bought him a bottle.

He likes Rekorderlig cider and has been drinking it for over a year and likes the fact that it’s light but still alcoholic – 4% – and tastes good.

They are both from Sweden and the bottles look very similar, either look stylish enough to bring out and impress friends at a BBQ for instance. In terms of taste, he says that there’s not much difference, but for his own palette he prefers the Aldi stocked alska cider as it’s a little less tart.

And what about price: Aldi’s alska bottle was £1.49 while Rekorderlig is £2.29, but is sometimes available on offer for multiple buys, so bringing the price down to around £1.50 a bottle.

    Hi! We are so glad you like our Strawberry & Lime! To clarify: we are The Swedish Cider Company, Aldi is one of many important costumers of ours! :)

      Thanks for the commment. Just found out for you that Raspberry & Peach and Pear & Lychee were a summer special just for three months at Aldi, though I swear my store had it for much longer. Waiting for Alska to tell me where else to buy in the UK.

      Strawberry & Lime and Nordic Berries should still be on the shelf though H. If you give me your postcode, I can get Alska to check for you.

    this is the only cider my husband drinks! its just a shame that they never stock enough in store, or organise it on the shelves properly. It'd be so much easier if they put the flavours on separate shelves or lines .

      It is delicious. I am just happy they have stock as I buy loads when it's in.
